                      • frostyjhammer 🤓5:31 · 9 months ago
                        As advertised, so easy that I (a novice meta solver who never watched the show) got home easily, with exactly one websearch. Thanks for the confidence builder.
                        • C64 5s · 9 months ago
                          I put the $ in the wrong place in my first submission. ¯_(ツ)_/¯
                          • Anita and Steve 5s · 9 months ago
                            Easy with Google. I haven't yet watched this show.
                            • RobertaB 🤓14:25 · 9 months ago
                              Fun, thanks! I loved that show
                              • Very nice! Moira was what clued me in after being stumped on it for a while
                                • MajordomoTom 🤓18:02 · 9 months ago
                                  not a show I've ever watched, but putting those four names into Google produced the answer pretty quickly - Will, your comment was spot on.
                                  • David Higgins 🤓16:56 · 9 months ago
                                    Fun puzzle and awesome show! Clue for 38A
                                    38A DOI"Is that even a question?!"
                                    a little taxing.
                                    • Laura M 🤓11:45 · 9 months ago
                                      Fun puzzle! Got to it late after MMMM and WSJ this past week, oof. I did watch the show and loved the Levy father/son team!
                                      • quatrevingtneuf 🤓9:33 · 9 months ago

                                        • Ryan Friedman 7s · 9 months ago
                                          Wondering how hard Will tried to put an E in box 7
                                          • Pandora's Blocks Weekly Meta Crossword constructor · 9 months ago
                                            You have no idea.... Darn that corner for being so difficult!
                                          • Meta World Peace 4s · 9 months ago
